Pramac’s Johann Zarco takes pole position for British MotoGP with a new all-time lap record at Silverstone.

The Frenchman will be joined in the front row by Aprilia’s Maverick Vinales and Ducati’s Jack Miller, while Fabio Quartararo and injured title rival Aleix Espargaro will start from row two.

A limping Espargaro came back into action after his massive 160kph FP4 highside, braving the pain of briefly putting his Aprilia on pole as he tries to close the 21-point gap to Quartararo on Sunday.

Reigning World Champion and defending Silverstone winner Quartararo will have to sit out a Long Lap penalty in the early laps of the race and therefore needed a front row starting grid today more than ever.

Quartararo was 0.118s on pole when the final run started, but the Yamaha star lost in the frenetic final laps and was pushed into fourth, just ahead of Francesco Bagnaia.

The top eight riders were below Marc Marquez’s previous lap record.

Suzuki teammates Alex Rins and Joan Mir struggled in qualifying, trailing 11th and 12th.

Fabio Quartararo will start British MotoGP, the first event after the summer break, with a reduced 21 point lead over Aleix Espargaro after a first DNF of the season at Assen.

Crucially, the French star must also serve a Long Lap penalty in Sunday’s Silverstone race as punishment for forcing Espargaro off the track during the misjudged pass, which ended with the Yamaha rider on the ground before a second accident put an end to his Dutch drama.

Both Quartararo and Espargaro have fond memories of last year’s Silverstone, when Quartararo won over Alex Rins’ Suzuki and Espargaro held off Jack Miller’s Ducati to claim the RS-GP’s first-ever MotoGP podium.

Espargaro and Aprilia’s spectacular season means that, despite the incident in Assen and handing over an almost certain podium in Barcelona, ​​the Spaniard arrives in the UK looking for a sixth podium and second win of the year.

Pramac Ducati’s Johann Zarco is best of the rest in third place albeit 58 points from Quartararo and still looking for a much anticipated Premier class victory, with Factory Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia eight points behind after three wins and three DNFs in the last six races.

Silverstone will be Bagnaia’s first MotoGP event since his drink-driving accident in Ibiza.

Enea Bastianini (Gresini Ducati) and Jorge Martin (Pramac) remain mired in the battle to become Bagnaia’s team-mate for 2023, with Silverstone likely to be their last chance to impress before a decision is made at the end of August.

Three-time race winner Bastianini has dropped to fifth after his early season exploits, with 2021 winner Martin currently eleventh with two second places.

Just two points separate Brad Binder and future KTM teammate Miller in the battle for sixth place in the championship, with the same narrow margin between Joan Mir and Alex Rins in their final season as Suzuki teammates.

While Rins has officially confirmed the switch to LCR Honda over the summer break, Mir’s anticipated switch to Repsol Honda instead of Pol Espargaro has yet to be confirmed.

While Marc Marquez is still recovering from his latest arm surgery, Espargaro – tipped to return to KTM and Tech3 next season – will be teamed up again this weekend with HRC test rider Stefan Bradl.
